Emotional Trains between Friends, Family, Lovers, & Mind.
Mercury retrograde phases happen every year. Usually the same elemental energy is emphasized. In 2019 Mercury spends extra time in water signs Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. These signs are considered karmic and tend to have an influence over the manner in which you communicate, relationships of any kind including friends, family, co-workers and significant others. Like all members of the zodiac the emotional past intermingles, at times positively and at others not so much. As you attempt to deal with circumstances on a rational, intellectual level then, it can be overwhelming and somewhat disorienting. Psychic senses will also be more pronounced during the Mercury retrogrades adding to the confusion that increased emotional sensitivity brings.
MERCURY Retrograde in SCORPIO October 31st, 2019 to November 20th, 2019
The final Mercury retrograde phase of the year begins on October 31stin the last degrees of Scorpio. There is a cosmic insistence that conscious engagement in a long overdue emotional transformation is about to take place. As it takes place in your communication sector you are likely to be more expressive which can come as some relief. During the previous retrogrades much of the persona work you were doing (on a psycho-emotional level) was, for the most part, kept private.
In truth, Mercury’s entry into Scorpio on October 3rdmay spur a need to engage in and share deeper psychological investigations far earlier than the official date of this retrograde phase. Yet, while Mercury backtracks the process could be more intense.

2019 Mercury RX in a nutshell….
All three periods will are likely to trigger emotions that are in need of further investigation. It won’t be easy. The tendency is to blame the actions of others for triggering us. While, yes, ‘they’ may play some part in causing us to hurt it is our responsibility to work through what comes up. The truth is no one can actually hurt us if we are aware and can accept that in order to grow, growing pains are to be expected.
